A Very Grumpy Puss by Manny

Last Friday I knew something was up when our mom fed the dog but not us cats.  She was being very strange but still pet me, she just would feed me.  I was extremely hungry too because the day before I got a very early supper at 4:30 which, by the way, my dad gave me.  He NEVER feeds us cats, it's always mom.

All aboard the Pet Taxi!
Finally, about 8:00 a.m. she finally put just 3 pieces of food in my bowl and put inside the cage (I normally eat at 4:30).  She had been putting my food in there every day this week instead of my usual place on the table in the den.  I was starving so of course I walked right in for it only this time, she closed the door behind me and I was trapped!  This made me very agitated and I knew right away it was going to be a horrible vet day.

My good hiding place
Sure enough, I was transported to the vet to have my few teeth cleaned and they poked me, drugged me so I slept and wouldn't feel what they were doing, took x-rays and kept me there all day until 4:00 p.m. when my mom finally came back for me.  I was so upset, immediately went up to the den to hide under the desk and pout. Mom found me after about an hour though so then I went down to a dark corner of the basement to hide and it took a long time for her to find me there.  When she did, I gave her a big hiss and she left me alone.

I ignored her all evening but finally pounced on her early the next morning to wake her up.  I still ignored her though all morning, even though I did come out of hiding,

Got Certificate of Bravery and TREATS that I didn't check out until the next day.
By afternoon, I was back to being my normal Mr. Nice Nice, especially when I saw what she bought for us with the money and gift cards she got for Secretary's Day:

Yea, a second cat tree for us!
I tried out the top level too once Spunky got off.

Dogs still love you after the vet visit. Cats not so much. Funny how different they are.

Have a terrific day. Scritches to all the babies. ☺

Wow! I'd say a second cat tree was worth the teeth cleaning! Too bad we kitties don't get one EVERY time we have to go in for a dental.

Aw, that was a rotten trick! Poor kitty. Well, I'm glad your teeth are all shiny and clean now AND you have a spiffy new cat tree! I'd say it was worth it, right?

I have forgiven mom now and am my normal Mr. Nice Nice once again. I think it was that anesthesia that made me so grumpy.
